Auto Accident in Florida Kills One, Injures Two
An auto accident between an SUV and an ambulance in Ft. Pierce, Florida on Tuesday, March 2, killed one person and injured two.
The accident occurred at an intersection where the ambulance was stopped and waiting to make a left turn. According to police, a white Nissan SUV collided with the ambulance, knocking the ambulance onto its side. The driver of the ambulance was treated and released, the medic in the passenger seat is listed in critical condition. The 63-year-old driver of the SUV was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
The posted speed limit is 45mph, but witnesses say it seemed the SUV was going twice that as it approached the intersection. One witness said the SUV didn't even slow as it hit a hump in the road, seemed to lift in the air, and hit the ambulance.
Investigators closed the road for three hours after the accident, but say the investigation into what caused it will be ongoing.
SUVs are large and heavy, and drivers do not always understand that they can do so much damage if they hit something. If the SUV in this case were to hit a smaller passenger car, there may have been more people who died.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, please contact an experienced personal injury attorney in your area for an initial case consultation.
